As winter comes to the coronaworld, I'm trying out different things to keep me busy. One of those things is a weekly post to share things I think are cool/important/fun/interesting, from books to shows to podcasts and other things in between.

Given that today is Remembrance Day, this week's recommendation is Will R. Bird's excellent WWI memoir, And We Go On. Bird signed up to fight with the Royal Highland Regiment of Canada in 1916 after seeing the ghost of his brother, who'd enlisted earlier and then been killed on the battlefield. The book is a good reminder that soldiers in every era were flawed human beings, and yet still made sacrifices that deserve to be remembered.
